CAN FD is available for computers using the PCI Express slot by Peak-System. The plug-in card PCAN-PCI Express FD has one or two CAN FD channels, depending on the model.
Besides the nominal bit-rate of up to 1 Mbit/s, the data bytes of CAN FD frames can be transmitted with up to 12 Mbit/s. A galvanic isolation of the CAN ports protects the electronics of the card and the respective computer against disturbances of up to 500 V. The PCAN-PCI Express FD can be operated with ambient temperatures in a range of -40 °C to +85 °C.
For the PCAN-PCI Express FD, there are device drivers for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10, as well as for Linux. Besides the monitoring software PCAN-View for Windows, which provides a plain analysis of the CAN traffic, several programming interfaces for Windows are in the scope of supply. PCAN-Basic 4 enables basic CAN FD communication with internally developed software in a simple manner. Furthermore, libraries of various standardized protocols from the automotive sector are included for programming.
